Subj: Wouldn't the rings give Mandarin some counter to Magneto's powers?

Depends on the range they start at when the fight starts. Magneto is more powerful, but he's been blitzed by Wolverine and others. The Mandarin is fast and strong enough to kill him with one punch/kick/karate-chop.

I'd say Mandarin wins if the fight at five feet or closer. Magneto wins if the fight starts further than that.

I'm directing this towards your reply, because you're our resident expert re: your namesake.

I actually think close quarters might not be good for Mandarin unless its very close and Magneto doesn't just automatically have his shields up. Mandarin is fast and skilled and can probably get to Mags before a shield goes up - if he isn't shielded already and they are within striking distance of one another when the fight starts. At even five feet, I think Mags could usually get a shield up before Mandarin could strike him despite Mandarin's speed.

On the other hand, though, the magnitude of the rings' power and the variety of effects they offer seem to me to give Mandy a better shot at getting past Mags' defenses than most.
